Bow Wow joins 'CSI: Cyber' as series regular

Shad Moss, better known as rapper Bow Wow, no longer wants to be like Mike. Rather, his newest role is that of an online hacker on the upcoming CSI spinoff CSI: Cyber.

Moss has joined CSI: Cyber as a series regular, playing the role of Brody “Baby Face” Nelson. His character is described as “a cyber-intrusion savant,” or in other words, a really, really good hacker who’s ordered by a judge to work with Patricia Arquette’s Special Agent Avery Ryan. With jail as his only other option, Nelson agrees to help on with a cyber case. His series-long dilemma will then become “working for the Feds while trying to keep his fingertips out of the Deep Web, where he was groomed to be one of the most prolific hackers in the world.”

“Bow Wow is a gifted young actor who will have the responsibility, through his character, to set an example for young people who watch the show to ‘do what’s right’ even when you know ‘nothing but wrong,'” CSI creator Anthony E. Zuikersaid in a press release. “It will be a redemption story and a cautionary tale all wrapped into one. The role of Nelson required someone with deep acting chops and off-the-charts smarts. Shad Moss is a unique talent that possesses both.”

CSI: Cyber is expected to premiere during the 2014-2015 season on CBS.

Kyle MacLachlan to return to 'The Good Wife'

In the absence of Will Gardner, it seems The Good Wife is bringing back a number of fan favorite characters. First, we found out that Carrie Preston’s Elsbeth Tascioni would make her triumphant return, and now we’ve got more good news for Tascioni fans: Josh Perotti is coming back with her.

EW has confirmed that Kyle MacLachlan will reprise his role as Perotti, the attorney who once caught Ms. Tascioni’s eye (or rather, she caught his). Although it’s unclear how long either of them will be sticking around, their returns will coincide, so here’s to hoping there’s a date involved. In fact, Preston told TVLine, which first reported the news, that “he and I have a little sparing [sic] thing that we do.”

The Good Wife returns for its sixth season on Sunday, Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. on CBS.

According to TVLine, which first reported the news, Ramona is “a smart, beautiful attorney with far-reaching Cook County connections.”
